    Letting Brockie go to Sydney over money was a terrible move by the knights. How the hell can Sydney offer him more money and stay under the cap with all their players?

    Melbourne v. Sydney drew 40,000 at docklands. Geelong v. Hawthorn today won't even draw that, probably 30 to 35,000. It was a great crowd and a good game.

    Went off at the Dome last night, great atmosphere, better than some footy games I've gone to. One flare went off, and some knob threw it off the top tier.

    I don't blame Brockie for leaving. The Knights were awful last season and the chance for Brockie to earn twice if not triple the amount as well as playing with a good side like Sydney..it would be too good to refuse. If the Knights can show some respectable scores over the next few seasons, the could get him back in the future.

    Glory 2 Mariners 0

    wow great display from Stan the man Lazaridis and also Leo Bertos awesome game... glory dominated and young vrteski was not really required for any big saves.

    the cheeky quick free kick from colosimo was well thought out and fair. young sealed it with a bertos cross

    Funny, at the end of last season there were big doubts on him coming to come back to Sydney to honour the second year of his contract.

    The reports over here suggest Sydney couldn't afford to offer him a second year.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Yorke was contracted for this year and when the majority shareholder of the club is worth 6 billion I don't think it is a matter of cost to be honest.

    Sydney are the 'glamour club' in the A-League and don't mind splashing the cash around.

    Yorke stuffed around at the end of last season and wouldn't commit to coming back to Sydney for the second year of his contract.

    I doubt very much that he would have signed another year had Sydney even offered it to him.

    Yorke is hardly going to turn down a $400,000 a year pay rise at Sunderland to stay in Australia.

    A sunny 44 degrees celcius expected in Kuwait City for today's match. I'd love to have seen the English reaction to that after the big fuss over 30 degrees in Germany!

    This is what the BBC has to say on it:
